Yup,

TLEO was snappy and punchy in 1975, an upbeat raggae feel with some unusual timing and the ascending/descending scales, but the tempo faded as the years passed on.

Reflections is a great LP, JGB meets The Grateful Dead.

Merry run around
sailing up and down
just looking for a shove
in some direction--
got it from the top
it's nothing you can stop
Lord, you know they
made a fine connection
They love each other
Lord, you can see it's true

He could pass his time
'round some other line
But you know he
chose this place beside her
Don't get in the way
there's nothing you can say,
Nothing thay you need
to add or do
They love each other
Lord, you can see it's true


It's nothing they explain
it's like a diesel train--
you better not be there
when it rolls over
And when that train rolls in
you don't know where it's been
You gotta try and see
a little further

A lot of folks don't like the slower tempo, but I love it either way. Same with FOTD. Just makes it more bluesy. 73 and 78 are my fav years for TLEO

far and away my personal favorite version of TLEO. Mid paced - not sluggish slow and not hippty-hop fast. Jerry is way up front in the mix and he is noodling up a storm throughout. He goes for seconds on his solo and the second round is pure Grateful Dead bliss. And Brent sticks with a real piano sound instead of the casio tinkle.

I love it when they warp the laws of physics, especially the ones that apply to music.
